Ice hangs when glacier is restarted

Hello.

I use glacier2 router and icegrid.
When icegrid with router is restarted the client can not reconnect to icegrid's servers objects - it hangs. Wireshark shows that Ice is calling ice_isA method indefinitely without a pause.
To reproduce it three files are sufficient:
config:
Ice.Default.Host=localhost
Ice.Default.Locator=IceGrid/Locator:tcp -p 4061

IceGrid.Registry.Client.Endpoints=tcp -p 4061
IceGrid.Registry.Server.Endpoints=tcp
IceGrid.Registry.Internal.Endpoints=default
IceGrid.Registry.Data=db/registry
IceGrid.Registry.PermissionsVerifier=IceGrid/NullPermissionsVerifier
IceGrid.Registry.AdminPermissionsVerifier=IceGrid/NullPermissionsVerifier
IceGrid.Node.Name=localhost
IceGrid.Node.Endpoints=default
IceGrid.Node.Data=db/node
IceGrid.Node.CollocateRegistry=1
IceGridAdmin.Username=foo
IceGridAdmin.Password=bar
app.xml:
<icegrid>
  <application name="Simple">
    <node name="localhost">
       <server id="glacier" exe="glacier2router" activation="always">
        <property name="Glacier2.Client.Endpoints" value="tcp -h localhost -p 4063"/>
        <property name="Glacier2.Server.Endpoints" value="tcp -h localhost"/>
        <property name="Glacier2.SessionTimeout" value="60"/>
        <property name="Glacier2.PermissionsVerifier" value="Glacier2/NullPermissionsVerifier"/>
        <property name="Glacier2.Trace.Session" value="1"/>
      </server>
    </node>
  </application>
</icegrid>

client.py:
#!/usr/bin/env python

import time, sys, Ice, Glacier2, IceGrid



class Client(Ice.Application):

  def run(self, args):
    obj = None
    while True:
      if obj:
        if not self.ping(obj):
          obj = None
      else:
        obj = self.connect()
      time.sleep(2)

  def connect( self ):
    ic = self.communicator()
    try:
      router = ic.stringToProxy('Glacier2/router:tcp -h localhost -p 4063')
      router = Glacier2.RouterPrx.checkedCast(router)
      session = router.createSession('', '')
      query = ic.stringToProxy('IceGrid/Query')
      query = query.ice_router(router)
      print 'casting...'
      obj = IceGrid.QueryPrx.checkedCast(query)  # hangs here after reconnect
      print 'casting... done.'
      return obj
    except Ice.Exception, x:
      return None

  def ping( self, obj ):
    try:
      obj.ice_ping()
      return True
    except Ice.Exception, x:
      return False


app = Client()
sys.exit(app.main(sys.argv))

First start icegrid:
$ icegridnode --Ice.Config=config --deploy app.xml
Then start client.py in another window. After that kill icegridnode and start it again.
$ ./client.py
casting...
casting... done.
casting...

Tested on Ice 3.3.1 under linux

    Hi,

    This is a known problem where the Ice communicator is caching some information which prevent a new session from being created.

    You need to destroy the communicator after the session is destroyed and create a new communicator before establishing a new session. Another option is to create an object adapter associated with the router after the session is created and destroy it once the session is destroyed.

    Cheers,
    Benoit.

    Thanks

    Hello.

    Thank you, Benoit. Workaround with adapter works fine.
